One of the best spots in Normandy: a nice, long left that wraps around a rocky bottom. A small cliff called Pointe de Chicard keeps the line-up glassy when the SW winds blow. On big days, a smaller right starts rolling on inside the bay.

Beware of the rip running towards Fécamp. It is always smaller and less crowded than Etretat, despite easy parking in front of the break.
